In June 2007, the premiere edition of Chiaroscuro Magazine!–a place where creativity flourishes, was published on the web. The magazine has since relocated to WordPress and is thriving here. Our mission is to foster understanding and appreciation of creativity and Christianity.
For centuries, the interrelatedness between art and religion in the Jewish and Christian traditions has remained strong. If you are a visual artist and wonder where that creative spark in you originated, you will find answers here. If you have been led to believe that art is only Christian art if it has a scripture emblazoned on it, we will dispel that myth for you.
Although God is the Creator of the Universe, He is not often portrayed as a creative being. We tend to think of human individuals as being creative, not God. God, however, is the original creative individual, the original artist, THE CREATIVE ARTIST… one who embraces realism as well as abstraction and non-representationalism.
We welcome fine artists, whether painters, sculptors, clay artists, filmmakers, interior designers, landscape designers, fabric and fashion designers, anime artists, graphic designers, illustrators, writers and poets, musicians, singers, actors, dancers… literally all artists.
We invite you to visit Chiaroscuro Magazine often, and experience the joy of creativity and Christianity for yourself.
